The HORTEN Brothers

Walter Horten (13 November 1913 - 9 December 1998 ) and Reimar Horten (12 March 1915 - 14 March 1994 ), sometimes credited as the Horten Brothers, were German aircraft pilots and enthusiasts. Though they had little, if any, formal training in aeronautics or a related field, the Horten Brothers designed some of the most advanced aircraft of the 1940's, including the world's first jet-powered flying wing, the Horten HO 229. Here are some of their designs and proposed designs.
